Crowning Achievement

| January 31, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY The term “exclusive” is thrown around plenty when it comes to Basel parties, but the word took its meaning to literal new heights at the Moncler 60th anniversary party atop the 1111 Lincoln Road Herzog & de Meuron parking garage. Simply put, if you weren’t on the list, you weren’t getting in. THE CROWD “It seems everyone who’s anyone who’s here from Basel is here,” quiped an attendee. Said ├╝ber-VIP group included Moncler President Remo Ruffini, Kathy Freston, Uma Thurman, Stephen Dorff, Karolina Kurkova, Will Kopelman, Pharrell Williams and the ubiquitous Peter and Harry Brant. THE SCENE The top floor of the garage was converted with white rugs, white tables and sofas, and glowing light-installation centerpieces. After dinner, DJ Jerry Bouthier kept things going late into the night. And when the evening got too chilly for some, staff passed out Moncler blankets to keep them warm. Ah, the luxe perks of exclusivity. Photography by
